No Comment!

Dear Fellow Shareholders,

As the Tai-pan of Hong Kong's most distinguished trading house, one is at times faced with complex decisions. Today is one such day, and I write to inform you of regrettable events.

It has come to the Board's attention that a series of defamatory articles have appeared in the local Hong Kong press. These articles are as fanciful as they are scurrilous. They carry allegations so preposterous that as Tai-pan I had no option but to act swiftly and sternly.

The key perpetrators are the Far Eastern Economic Review and FinanceAsia, upon whose pages I personally have been labelled "the evil Taipan Quillan Gornt" and "a dodgy Pavarotti lookalike". Editors take note: Rothwell-Gornt has suspended all future interviews to these publications.

Separately and unrelated, I am sad to announce the untimely death of Rothwell-Gornt's Media Relations Officer who accidentally passed away while choking on a steamed bun earlier this morning. New applicants can apply through this weblog.

Best of joss,

Quillan Gornt
CEO and Tai-pan
Rothwell-Gornt Holdings

Well at least they are right about me being principled but tough. As for their other comments...

Principled but tough counts for nothing if you end up on the losing side, Taipan.

Struan's will be crushed and Rothwell-Gornt will show no compassion.

Kindest regards,
